jump over. last month when president obama was sworn into his second term, i was reminded of something he said four years ago in his first inauguration. the president said, "the question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small but whether it works, whether it helps families finds a job at a decent wage, care they can afford or retirement that is dignified." what we have seen from this president is reckless spending and a heavy hand in regulation. at the time of the president's first inauguration, the unemployment rate was 7.8%. at the time of his second inauguration, it was exactly the same and this month unemployment rose to 7.9%. while the rate of unemployment has been mostly stagnant, the national debt has not. in the past four years of failed obama policies, the nation has added $6 trillion of new debt onto the backs of citizens and businesses. today our national debt stands at $16.4 trillion, broken down by american citizens, that's $52,210 for every man, woman and child in this country. we must get back on the right track and bring optimism into busines
